I am interested in going this year, have never been there before. Looking for more info on what it is all about, much chance for my kids to get autographs, etc.

You can get some autographs if you don't mind standing in long lines. There is lots of things for the kids to do, batting cages, pitching games, Twingo. Tons of collector stuff there, cards, bobbleheads, that kind of thing.

Lots of info on tickets, new ballpark, minor league teams, live radio shows with big name Twins players, broadcasters, etc.

Plan on staying awhile and you can have a good time.

It is a glorified collectors (SALE) show in my opinion. Lines are real long to get autographs. I've been twice but wasn't thrilled about going back, and probably wouldn't go back again.

I've never been one to stand in line so I guess I'm not totaly sure, but I believe autographs are free.

The only reason I would go is for the kids to get to see players and get autographs. I don't care to buy collector stuff.

Thanks guys.

if you are looking for mauer, morneau, killebrew, blyleven get to your line a minimum of an hour and a half in advance. they do strictly enforce the cutoffs no matter how long you have been waiting.

only for minor leaguers, and not even all of them. autographs for [PoorWordUsage] players are 5 bucks, 10 for decent players and 15-25+ pending what you want signed from guys like mauer and morneau and killebrew. if you want harmon to auto a bat i think it costs 50 bucks.

also that price is per autograph, not family. two kids, double the price.

We went a few years ago. For me the attraction was seeing the clubhouse... could not believe how small it was. No photos allowed in there, tho. Fairly decent tour: sit in the dugout, go up the steps to the clubhouse, sit in the media seats. But the LINES. For EVERYTHING. Not really worth it for most things offered. And you used to get a free ticket to a game (after waiting FOREVER in a line...) now, it's a buy-one-get-one-free ticket offer. Some nice memorabilia brought in from Cooperstown... no lines there, just wander around the field looking at the stuff.

It costs more money for the better players, and even more for the past Twins' players.

Some of them even have set rules where they can't autograph certain items. I think I remember Carew wouldn't autograph any bats. Pretty ridiculous I'd say...

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
